Emission of Electromagnetic Rays from Mobile Phones Cause Dysfunction of Thyroid Gland

Dr. Humera Ayesha | Shaikh Mahmood

Abstract: During the past decade, there is a dramatic increase in wireless communication system particularly the mobile phones (cell phones) which are low power single channel two ways radios that emit signals through electromagnetic waves. As most of the physiological functions in our body is regulated by electric currents and the electromagnetic fields (EMF) emitted from the mobile phones may affect the physiological processes and associated health effects like sleep disorders, ,headaches, etc .When we discuss about the endocrine system the most exposed vital endocrine glands when compared to pineal, pituitary, adrenal which can get affected by the electromagnetic fields is thyroid gland, An important endocrine glands that control our body metabolism which is located in front of the neck and release hormones into the bloodstream. It secretes Thyroxine(T4)1, Triiodothyronine(T3) Calcitonin, to synthesize thyroid hormones Thyroid gland needs Iodine, too little or too much iodine can affect the level of hormones and its release. Role of thyroid hormones is to control Metabolism, Body Temperature, Breathing, Heart rate, Brain development, Mental activity, Digestion, Fertility etc. This study shows a higher TSH level (Hypothyroid) with low T4 in mobile phone users. It may be concluded that there can be deleterious effects of mobile phones through electromagnetic rays on Hypothalamo-Pituitary-Thyroid axis (HPT).
